The island of Ibiza is a paradise full of local and international flavours, where local ingredients and organic farming predominate. A good proof of this are the wines of Ibiza. Due to their bouquet and flavor intensity, they have managed in recent years to become the best accompaniment to gourmet and delicatessen products.

THE LAND MEETS TRADITION IN THE BALEARICS
The reduced size of Ibiza and Formentera, together with the almost total isolation that the islands suffered for so many centuries, conditioned the way of working the countryside. The small land of the estates was divided into small plots of land, or “minifundios”, in which they had to cultivate any type of food in order to survive; cereals, olive trees, almonds and orchards. And, of course, the vine.
The farmers of that time worked and lived without depending on anyone to be happy since that was what wine was for. A creed that yielded great success in the long run, with time, local peasants became amateur oenologists and viticulturists.
Half need half devotion, that's how the wines of Ibiza were born. A peasant wine or “vi pages”, that is still produced in many homes on the island.

THE WINE OF IBIZA AND FORMENTERA, A TRIBUTE TO THEIR ANCESTORS
It wasn't until the 1990s that a group of pioneers made the impossible possible, producing quality wines in Ibiza and Formentera. Until then, the wines from the peninsula and abroad were imported to supply tourism trade. Wineries such as Can Rich in Buscastell or Can Maymó in Sant Mateu began to harvest wine to gradually introduce them on the menus of island restaurants. A winemaking experience that was combined with the preparation of other selected local products typical of the island such as vermouth, the famous herbal liqueur, olive oil, balsamic vinegar or salt.
From Formentera, the wines from Cap de Barbaria or Terramoll have shown that the saline climate of the smallest island in the Balearic Islands is the ideal place to produce wines with a strong finish that can be exported anywhere on the planet.
Wineries such as Ibizkus have their market niche in rosé wines, which are clearly on the rise, and white wines, which have sold more than 60,000 bottles in recent years.
You don't have to go far to taste the wines produced in Ibiza, regulated with the geographical indication protected since 1996. 80% of the bottles drunk in 2017 (more than 1400 hectolitres) were sold on the island.
